To request a Mass intention, please note the following
A stipend in no way corresponds with
the value of the Mass, which is of infinite value. Expressions such
as: “How much does a Mass cost?” or “How much is it for a Mass?” are
inaccurate. It is more correct to say: “What is the
stipend for a Mass?”
Given the small number of priests in
the USA District and
the great number of Masses requested, we cannot give specific dates when the
requested Masses will be
Unlike other donations which are given
directly to the Society or its chapels, Mass stipends are given
directly to the priest who celebrates the Mass and therefore these
are not classified as tax-deductible contributions; consequently, it
is not possible for us to give an income tax receipt.
We ask those who wish to have Masses
said to please indicate clearly on a piece of paper their name, the
intention of the Mass to be said (including, if applicable, the name
of any person(s) for whom the intention is associated) and to put
this information and the stipend in an envelope for the priest
(celebrant). Also, please indicate whether the person for whom a
Mass is intended is deceased or living.
Those unable to pay
this new stipend rate should speak with their local pastor in order to
request a Mass for a lower stipend.
